Every story needs to be heard, and some are good enough to tell more than once. There’s no question that Forest Gump is in the second group. Aamir Khan is back on our screens with Laal Singh Chaddha, an Indian version of a Tom Cruise movie. After two long years of waiting, it’s finally here, and all I can say right now is that innocence and love have put me in a sweet coma.
So far, the posters have been enough to show how poetic the movie will be. At the beginning of the trailer, Aamir plays Laal Singh Chaddha. He talks about his life’s journey and how it has no clear goal. When Rupa (Kareena Kapoor Khan) shows him the way, it moves on to his childhood. And he starts his trip through the history of the Indian people.
Laal Singh Chaddha is a remake of a story by Atul Kulkarni. Advait Chandan directed it, and the story is set in the Indian landscape. There are enough memories to make you want to go back in time. There are more than enough exciting parts to the story of a man who ran across a country to find his purpose. But nothing looks like a copy of the original. Isn’t that the point of an adaptation? At least based on the trailer, Chandan and his team get full marks.
When it comes to acting, Aamir Khan is perfect, and this time he has the innocence of a child. Even though it has some similarities to PK, it never makes us feel like we have a hangover. Kareena Kapoor Khan is like a cool breeze on a warm day. She has a soothing charm, and in the movie, she does become the mystery she is supposed to be. We all know how important Mona Singh is and how natural she is. Naga Chaitanya is also a prince, and he looks very impressive.
Even though it discusses some of the most important and serious parts of Indian history, it all seems to be done responsibly. This story has love, longing, and all the pure heart it needs. Let your life, which needs direction, become a journey of finding hope.
